DSI Telehealth Vitiligo

vitiligo treatment from Illinois Dermatologist An estimated two percent of the American population has vitiligo. Its onset can be triggered by a single sunburn, or a stressful life event. Vitiligo often appears in the mid-20s, but it can occur at any age, in both genders, and in all ethnicities. The condition also tends to run in families. While vitiligo is not serious from a physical health perspective, it can be emotionally devastating to patients, causing issues with body image and self-esteem. Patients today have excellent safe and effective treatment alternatives for vitiligo, at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, with office in Algonquin.

Understanding vitiligo

Vitiligo is a disease which causes the skin to lose pigmentation. It usually begins as small patches of white skin that enlarge and spread. Involvement of the face, ears, fingers, toes and genital areas are common and can occur in matter of months, or it may progress slowly, over a span of years. Vitiligo may affect other areas of the body, such as the hair, mouth, and eyes. The root cause is unknown, but an autoimmune disorder is suspected, destroying the melanocytes that produce pigments in skin and hair.

Treatment advances

In recent years, treatment for vitiligo has seen some amazing developments. These recently developed techniques reduce the “spilt milk” appearance of vitiligo, re-pigment affected skin, and are even capable of fully restoring skin color.
These treatments include:
  • Phototherapy
  • Xtrac (excimer) laser therapy
  • Topical creams
All of these treatment options are available at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois. Dr. Vikram Khanna and his team have successfully treated hundreds of patients with vitiligo, helping them enjoy the confidence of healthy, even skin tone.
